    Tools, options, general and privacy. What is your homepage setting? Are you caching pages?

    Like the avatar.

    Home page: mozilla.org

    Yes, caching up to 5mb per session. No special reason for this; default I think.
    Usually clean out after each session.

    Nothing found with AdAware or SS&D, AVG, NAV, Spysweeper, A2.
    No other sus activities I can see.
    Have spyware blaster with Mozilla option on.

    Any ideas?

    I would try http://www.mozilla.org and see if you still get redirected.

    You could set your cache lower or to zero for awhile and see how it goes.

    Other than that, I would change my homepage.

    If it continues, something else is afoot. :D

    OK
    Will give that a run.
    No redirects over last 48/24.
    We'll see what happens
    Thanks.
